Mr. E. Rayment, J.P., chairman.
Long Road School.—The Medical Officer of Health forwarded an intimation from the County Medical Officer that the Board of Education has now agreed to the connection of the Long-rd Senior School to the public sewer on the lines of Scheme I. submitted by the County Architect, at an estimated cost of £460.— Mr. A Joyce expressed satisfaction that at last the school was to be properly sewered, and during discussion it was thought that the second scheme was the better, but a recommendation that this scheme be adopted was not carried.
Shelter Problems. — Numerous applications had been received for Morrison table shelters from occupants of houses of timber-frame construction. Having regard to the fact that Morrison shelters could not be used in these properties, the Regional Technical Adviser wrote that Anderson shelters could be erected on the surface and encased in concrete in cases where houses were unsuitable for Morrison shelters, and authorised the employment of six men to be engaged on this work. It was agreed that this should be proceeded with as and when required.
Magisterial Duties.—It was reported that Miss C. J. James, J.P., was likely to give up her magisterial work, and it was suggested that the name of the Chairman of the Council should be placed upon the permanent toll of Justices. Other speakers submitted that in view of his past services the name of Mr. F. J. Leach should be submitted, but Mr. Leach suggested the matter should be left where it was. .
